Art of Twentieth-Century American Poetry by Charles Altieri
Book DescriptionWritten by a leading critic, this invigorating introduction to modernist American poetry conveys the excitement that can be generated by a careful reading of modernist poems. It encourages readers to identify with the modernists' sense of the revolutionary possibilities of their art. It embraces four generations of modernist American poets up through to the 1980s. It gives readers a sense of the ambitions, the disillusionments and the continuities of modernist poetry. It includes close readings of particular poems which show how readers can use these works to connect with what concerns them.
